‘Total mess’ Klinsmannho, chairman in hiding, coach in hot water…a ‘hot potato’ overseas

The ‘Klinsmann Ho’ feud is a hot topic overseas.

British media outlets have made the feud between Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in of the Korean national soccer team the centerpiece of their stories.

“Son Heung-min suffered a dislocated finger during a fight with teammates who ate dinner early to play table tennis a day ahead of the Asian Cup semifinals,” the Daily Mail reported, citing a rumor that the 카지노사이트 South Korean soccer team had a feud.

“The young players were reportedly rushing through their meal to play table tennis. However, Son Heung-min was annoyed by the behavior of getting up from his seat first and took issue with PSG’s Lee Kang-in. The altercation escalated to the point where the Tottenham ace suffered a dislocated finger,” said the report.

Jürgen Klinsmann’s men’s national soccer team failed on the threshold of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar as they attempted to regain their title after 64 years.

The team lost 0-2 in the semifinals to 87th-ranked Jordan, a team that was considered an underdog, without a single shot on target.

On paper, the result is better than the quarterfinal exit in the 2019 United Arab Emirates (UAE) under former coach Paulo Bento. But the aftermath has been fierce. Klinsmann’s tactics and lack of leadership throughout the tournament have come under scrutiny.

His unorthodox behavior, including working from his home in the U.S. since his appointment in March last year, exploded with the semifinal exit.

In response, the KFA held a meeting on Dec. 13 with Kim Jeong-bae, vice president, Lee Seok-jae, tournament chairman Jung Hae-sung, technical development chairman Lee Im-sung, vice chairman Jang Oe-ryong, vice chairman Choi Young-il, power enhancement chairman Michael Muller, refereeing chairman Lee Jung-min, technical director Hwang Bo-kwan, and management director Jeon Han-jin, to prepare for the Asian Cup follow-up.

President Chung Mong-kyu was absent. Fans and political circles alike criticized the federation, Chung, and Klinsmann for their irresponsible behavior. All those in positions of responsibility were absent.

In the midst of this, Vice Chairman Lee Seok-jae informed Chung that the executives’ opinions had been organized with the reprimand.

The federation plans to hold a power strengthening committee on Friday to evaluate the Asian Cup. It will decide whether Klinsmann should be fired. Klinsmann will attend the meeting via video only.
